Happy Thanksgiving!

We just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and to tell you how thankful we are for each and every one of you. Without your support there would be no Stamper’s Alley.

We also wanted to remind you that we will be closed Thursday and Friday, but we will be open on Saturday! We have a few new arrivals, so stop by and check them out.

We have the All Star Issue of Scrap & Stamp, and the latest issue of Take Ten. Memory Box stamps and Tinsel 6 x 6 paper pads are back in stock, along with four Believe stamps which have been autographed by Dave Brethauer himself!


More Hero Arts Christmas and some Stampendous Christmas stamps are in the house, too. The Scor-Buddy is back in stock, as well as some new (to us) colors of Adirondack ink pads. I almost forgot - Liquid Pearls has been reformulated and they have added 6 new colors! You have to come see them, they are gorgeous! They don’t require “thumping” to settle down into a nice dome shape, they are much easier to use now.

Have a wonderful holiday and don’t eat too much pumpkin pie! Oh wait, there are no calories on Thanksgiving Day. Eat all you want!

See you soon :-)

And last but certainly not least, the new XPressIt Tape from Copic. Janine Blackwelder introduced this to us during her Spellbinders Workshop last weekend. X-PRESS IT HIGH TACK TAPE is ideal for all of your artistic adhesive needs. The double-sided tape is heat resistant, great for instant hemming, and works well on surfaces that will also be embossed. It is perfect for use with photos, framing, attaching embellishments, and adhering items together. This tape has an extremely strong hold, and performs well on a variety of surfaces including metals, glass, wood, paper, plastic, and fabric. Available in 1/8” x 27 yards, and 1/4" X 55 yards. 1/2” should be here soon.


Whew! That’s it for now! We hope to see you very soon!


Spellbinders Workshop

If you wanted to sign up for the Spellbinders Workshop on Saturday, November 6 and the class was full, we have good news! We have one spot left in the class this Saturday, and there is another class scheduled for Saturday, November 20 at 9am and seats are available! It will probably fill up pretty quickly, so call (704-664-5068) or stop in soon and reserve your seat. Remember, to assure your seat in class, you must pay your class fee when you sign up, or at least give us a credit card number to hold for you. We do require 72 hour notice for cancellation in order to refund your fee. That gives us enough time to try and fill your spot in the class. For more information, please see the Class Schedule page on the website. Class Policies are at the bottom of the page.

Here is the info on the class:

Bio: My name is Janine Blackwelder and I live in central North Carolina with my husband, Hal and our son, Brandon. I love all things related to paper crafting and enjoy sharing my expertise with other paper crafters. I love to spend time with my friends, stamping and scrapping. We take road trips looking for unique stores, and products not found at our local stores and then have fun creating special designs or cards, scrapbook pages, home decor, gift items and more.

I started rubber stamping in 1995, added scrapbooking in 1996 and have been hooked ever since. For 9 years, I owned and operated a scrapbooking and rubber stamping store in Greensboro, NC. called Memories in the Making. Since then, I've been on a number of design teams including Spellbinders Paper Arts 2009-2010, Mosaic Moments, Elemental Doodles, and Clearly Clever. Currently I design for Just For Fun rubber stamps and McGill, Inc.

Students are to Bring: Your favorite adhesive, scissors, and personal die cutting machine (Wizard, Cuttlebug, or Big Shot) along with platforms, cutting plates and tan embossing mats, Spellbinders die templates and Cuttlebug embossing folders. If you are able to bring fresh (uncut) cutting plates that will be very helpful, as I will discuss proper sandwiching for each machine.
